    Smile My first post! Please listen and give feedback!

    Hi everyone,

    just wanna start out by saying that I think this forum is brilliant! I've been reading it for a short while and now that I've got a thing ot two ready to post, I wanna say how amazing (i think) GPO is and thank Gary for it all! anyway about the piece...

    Although this piece uses pretty much a full orchestra (plus midi rock toms), and the fact that I put in a fair bit of time trying to get it to send right, I would consider this track as less of a piece and more of an idea (which I would develop more if it werent for uni work!) My particular interests are game and film music (if youve heard the soundtrack to oblivion the style is similar to this) and I would love to enter the industry of post-production composition, but i need to get my music as real and good as possible to get there, so please comment on this track with any improvements etc etc.

    Thanks a lot, and i hope you enjoy!

    PS: hope the new link above works, the original went invalid so i tried two others (further down the forum) which dont work either, so above is my latest link attempt!

    Thumbs up Re: My first post! Please listen and give feedback!

    Ben,

    You sure know how to make a good impression on your first post. Your music is fantastic! I particularly like your use of dynamic and contrast. The harp part was terrific and a nice surprise with the build up that followed.

    Welcome to the forum and keep up the terrific work! Thanks for sharing this and hope you post more music.

    Wow - this is really good movie music that even keeps my attention without the movie. You seem to have a really good sense for this stuff!

    Keep it coming!

    Welcome to the forum, Ben.

    And quite an introduction!

    Ben, this is excellent work; beautifully built
    and orchestrated, written with clarity and
    impact. As others have said, the contrasting
    sections are especially well handled... it takes
    real skill to get those transitions to work so
    well.

    Now. Having said all these nice things, I have
    a very serious complaint about this piece.

    There isn't enough of it!

    Bring us more, Ben!

    My best,

    wow, thanks for the compliments guys! you are too kind!

    One of my bros said it was too short and that it should be developed more but uni work is "getting in the way". plus, it took me about a week to put that together. (i had to do it in sections cos my pc isn't powerful enough).

    Thanks for the link Gary, will check it out now.

    I'll try and post some more stuff soon, but for now thanks for making me a happy man!

    Ben

    Ben,

    Like the others I'm very impressed by this opening piece you've posted.
    Set your sights high and go for it.
    looking forward to hearing more.

    Hi Ben,

    here another Ray (but from Holland). This sounds refreshing. You titled it Game Idea? Which game did you have in mind (the plot)? I played it twice and still am surprised by the dynamics used.

    Good work,

    Raymond

    Thanks Ray

    Is it titled game idea? Id thought I'd changed it. It wasnt for any plot in particular, I just had in mind one of those epic "im a warrior with a rusty sword whos going to save the country and restore honour to my family" type games, and then came up with this! Its really just a theme being treated in a few different ways as I wanted to see what I could do with GPO!

    Thanks again, glad your feeling refreshed!

    Ben
